    Jets’ owner would like Dolphins or Pats for MNF opener

    by Brian Biggane The website ProFootballTalk.com got the speculation going Sunday night when it threw out the possibility that the Dolphins might be the New York Jets’ opponent in the first Monday Night Football game of next season.
    Jets owner Woody Johnson gave his support to the idea at the NFL spring meetings in Orlando Monday.

    “Dolphins? That’s a possibility,” Johnson said. “Either (them) or the Patriots would be a pretty good game.”
    A coin flip last week determined that the New York Giants will open the new stadium on a Sunday and the Jets will play the following night. No opponents have been announced for either game.
    The NFL schedule isn’t due to be announced until mid-April, but some of the premier matchups tend to leak out at these meetings, which continue until Wednesday. Johnson insisted he has no inside information.
    “I know it’s 7 o’clock, Monday night, ESPN, in our stadium,” he said when asked about the reports. “But has the opponent been selected? I don’t know.”
    The Dolphins do make a lot of sense, particularly since other reports have New England playing at Detroit on Thanksgiving Day.
    It goes without saying that it sticks in the craw of both Jets’ fans and coach Rex Ryan that Miami beat New York in both meetings last year - one of them in a dramatic Monday nighter in Miami. One can imagine the Jets lobbying hard to get their chance to extract revenge in their first-ever appearance at the spanking new stadium

    I'm sure we won't play them their first game on their home turf. Not the best way starting off a new stadium with a home team loss...

    I will laugh when Sanchez is sacked 7 times by Wake and Dansby, following a season ending.

    I'd love to see it. New England would rape them. We will make it a good game. Sanchez will be rusty.

    \Imagine how much **** rex would talk if Miami was playing them in the opener? Imagine D. Bryant having a coming out party with a 2 td game :) Seriously though, I would love beating the **** out of these dumb *** jets for the first time in this new stadium, and remembering it every day until I die. I hate those ****ers

    Poor Buffalo not being considered too. I guess the Bills are the red-headed step sons of the AFC East.

    And I'd love to beat the Jets for the first game in the new stadium and making it 3 in a row. Get to make fun of all my friends who are Jet fans!

    That's what I'm thinking too, but man that would be great to beat them in their new digs right out of the gate.

    Even better that would be 4 in a row. The last game '08 with JetFavre, the two in '09, and then another in '10.

    Edit: make that 2 more wins in '10

    Although I got a hunch it will be against you guys I don't want to open against you. I'd rather have you guys have to come up here and play in December. Either way it will be a good game I'm sure. Its either you or us winning the division this year so each of the two games is gonna be huge.

    Personally I think they'll have us open with either the Vikes or Ravens...better story lines IMO. Bert comes back to play the Jets, LT turned downed the Vikes for us....or...Rex going against his old team. Our home opener has been with the Pats for the past three years...I'm tired of it.

    Honestly, it should be us. The rivalry is back, and the Pats are on the slide. We are the top 2 teams in the division by next year if not surprisingly this year.
    Not to mention Ryan can't stop talking about us, and incidents off the field.

    It's no worse than how a lot of Jets fans felt about Miami games a few years back. To me, your coach wanting to play us or the Patriots is a compliment to both teams. I think this would be a great game. I see this becoming one of the hot rivalries of the next 5-10 years. Both teams would come full force because we each know the importance of a division game between two good teams. Now, if I was a Buffalo Bill (God forbid that ever happening :lol:) I'd be a bit offended that my team was not mentioned.

    Not that I lack confidence in our team's abilities/talent, but we don't have the best opening season record. Playing against the Jets in their stadium, primetime, scares me a little bit. I would rather have the Fins play a few games before going against such an important division rival. That way we could hone our team and have some time to give our guys some real game experience. We got a very young team compared to the Jets and I think the few games could do them good.

    With that said, if we are the opponents I say it will be a VERY tough game for both teams.

    The difference is we dominated you guys for years and years, your current "domination" consists of 3 games. If you sweep us again I'll agree you are in our players heads but 3 games is too small of a smaple.

    I think it was our owner who mentioned it and yes it is a compliment to both you and NE. Desapite what our players coaches said last year they respect Miami- how could they not? I think our rivalry is growing to the way it used to be and that's good for us and good for the league.

    Since the Giants won the coin toss, I would love for us to open up against the Jets in Miami.

    Funny considering Sanchez wasn't sacked 7 times in a game last season. The most he got sacked in a single game was 4 times. Henne has the better shot at being sacked 7 times.

    I would welcome playing you guys opening game, the stadium will be crazy and the defense will be out to dominate. Rex thinks that the defense will be even better this year and so do I. Year 2 in the scheme and got rid of some weak points, we'll upgrade the DL in the draft and also get back Jenkins.

    I thought about that, but you must consider that 3 games is a big start for us after the years of frustration the Jets caused.
